Considering it’s so close to Termini train station you can get to it easily. I wouldn’t base an entire trip around it but at the very least if you’re centrally based you’ll probably end up walking past it.

I liked this statue and found it appealing in its simplicity. I'm not sure it's worth going out of your way to see it but due to its central location it's difficult to miss

What a beautiful Statue of the Holy Father. Very artistic. Like nothing I have ever seen before. I am so happy that I got the chance to see it. I didn't even know this statue existed.
